Jenny Craig spokesperson Mariah Carey talked with "Extra's" AJ Calloway after her press conference Wednesday, and she set the record straight on her comment about short-lived Hollywood marriages.

During the Jenny Craig press conference, Carey remarked, "I'm a real person, I'm not going to put on a fake face for Hollywood. Sometimes we make each other mad, that's why we aren't divorced after four months."

But she told Calloway she was commenting on how she wants to stay married, even though it can be tough in Hollywood. "First of all, I don't read the tabloids unless it's about me. And even then, when it is about me, I try not to read it unless it's good," she laughed. "I don't look at these people; I don't even know what it is, but I do know that marriages come and go really quickly in Hollywood."

The singer continued, "A lot of people have high-profile moments and then they get a divorce and I'm sure it's very painful for them. My thing is I don't want that. I got married to stay married. I want some stability for our kids, and Nick feels the same way. Not only are we both kind of jokesters, for the lack of a better word, we are also kind of provincial in that way. I think we both believe in trying to make it through. I'm proud of it."
